About Us

Sow Much Good (SMG) was founded to eliminate socio-economic, racial, and ethnic health disparities that result from a lack of access to nutritionally dense food products in marginalized populations. SMG works to achieve food justice through programming and community based initiatives designed to provide equal access to organic food sources; to inspire individuals to take charge of their health and to promote healthy lifestyles through food and nutrition.

The Facts

  • An urban food desert is an area in a city where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain. Mecklenburg County has 60 neighborhoods with over 73,000 residents living in urban food deserts. Food deserts are also prevalent in may rural areas.
  • ›Since its inception in 2008, Sow Much Good has helped spare hundreds of people from nutritional starvation through education, the Grow Your Own program and local farm stands.
  • Diabetes, hypertension and obesity are no one’s birth right – these chronic health problems can be greatly reduced through a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Sow Much Good gives marginalized communities access to the nutritious produce and education they need to combat these devastating diseases.
